The Window Treatment Look to Love: Layered Fabrics

The layered look in home design is similar to wearing a layered outfit. Layered fabrics at the window allow for window treatments to serve your room for both function + style. Add warmth, texture, color, pattern, and visual interest to your space by creating layers. Our team can walk you through our many collections of shutters, shades, blinds, and draperies, allowing you to mix and match, creating the atmosphere you love.


Start with Neutrals

Neutrals, if done incorrectly, can make a room fall flat and lack interest. However, neutrals also have the power to completely elevate a space and tie it all together when done correctly!

The large scale windows capture the eye and the draperies hung at the ceiling help to draw that eye all the way up. Both of these strategic design choices help make the space look larger and show off the windows, while still offering light control when necessary.


A Look into Moody Design

Moody colors are making themselves known in the design world! And not just in small ways… but on a large scale, as well. A moody look requires balance. Select your color palette, then add in layered fabrics in different prints, textures, and solids within that palette to keep a cohesive, yet interesting atmosphere.

Pairing the darker, more moody textile shade with the lighter, more simple draperies creates a beautiful, timeless look with a bit of modern contrast mixed in.


Pairing Both Style & Function

Not only do layered fabrics provide a statement style, but they excel in functionality as well! The base shade adds privacy, light control, easy use, and energy efficiency. Bringing draperies to all of that will heighten the control of light and add insulation to your windows as well.
